"When I first played Ted it changed my life. I tapped into something in myself I hadn't really seen. There's a lot of joy in that guy. Playing him for three months, every day for fifteen hours - it's like having the experience of a best friend, how you change when you hang out with that best friend, how you start sounding like him."

- Keanu Reeves

K-SWAT, hard at work.

( scripts & books )


I am in the process of searching out scripts of Keanu films, and they'll appear on this page as I find and upload them. If you know of a script that is not on this list, it would be great if you could e-mail it to me, either as a link or an attachment to admin(at)whoaisnotme.net, along with its details - draft number, authors, year written - unless the info is on the script itself.

Not all final drafts or shooting scripts are exactly the same as what finally appeared on screen. Sometimes lines were ad libbed or scenes cut from the final film. Any confirmations would be appreciated.

The transcripts appear to be fairly accurate, but most of them were typed by people while watching the films and as such may be prone to the occasional typo error or misspelling.
